 Lovely clean campsite enjoyed the bike rides and the stem train ride. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Toilets and showers cleaned regularly. Good dog walk on site through the woods.

 The stay was excellent with superb landscape views of wales, on a sunny afternoon.

Would highly recommend and shall return soon.

The portable toilet facilities were excellent too.

Reviewer: Mrs Bear 1 review from this member

 Been visiting here for 20 years and this year was a disappointment. So in regards site rules and pitching instructions - do what you want no one enforces anything!. We were advised that pup tents had to go on the hard standing and not on the adjacent grass areas this did not apply to several people, social distancing a joke, fire pits popular, lots of groups getting together and drinking to the early hours.

Children and adults on bikes, skateboards and scooters racing around the plots at the top of the site up and down the hills, we even had one kid and his skateboard crash into our awning when misjudging a down hill corner, how a kid did not get hit by a car I wonder!

On a positive note the Miners Arms at Whitecroft a pleasant walk through the woods did a good pint, canoeing on the Wye was great and as usual the cycling and walking from the site were excellent.

On a general note the toilet facilities are looking a bit tired and could have done with more cleaning, the outside bar area needs more tables and chairs and protection from the rain whilst social distancing measures are in place. Would also be good to see hand sanitisers at the play areas.

 Surroundings were beautiful

However our stay was spoilt by noisy drunken families until late and the staff doing nothing about it till past midnight.

Adults wanting a peaceful time should avoid during school holidays.

Reviewer: Wizzy Seas 4 reviews from this member

 We have used this site for over 20 years but tend to avoid school holidays - we remember why now! We expected in these post-covid times that there would’ve have been some limits on numbers but it was the busiest we’ve ever seen.

The campsites looked very disorderly and cluttered with tents campers and caravans mixed everywhere with no respect of the pitching instructions. Some of the units were clearly not road-worthy and there were a lot of first-time campers!

Our neighbours pitched their table and chairs inches away from our caravan - luckily it rained so they went elsewhere to continue drinking. We didn’t use any of the facilities since they were overcrowded and non of the staff or customers were using gloves or masks.

The forest is beautiful and so was this site until they overdeveloped it :-( There are better places to stay to explore the area.

Date of Visit: March 2020 Unit:  Motorhome
Nights stayed: 3 Travelling as:  Retired couple
Reviewer: Nuevoboy 86 reviews from this member

 This was probably our sixth stay in a motorhome, having originally used the log cabins and apartments. We were surprised how full the site was (given the Coronavirus issue) but all was well on the park.

The facilities were absolutely spotless and the cleaning staff should be praised for their efforts. It was noticeable that there was a lot more cleaning going on in the leisure centre too.

The facilities really are top class and we used the pool, jacuzzi and steam room on three consecutive days.

The weather though, was rather poor, which restricted our cycling somewhat, but then that's when the leisure facilities really come to the fore.

We ate in the Woodman pub each night and the food and service was again top notch.

 Gorgeous site, fantastic facilities in the heart of the forest of dean.

The only down side was a school was in the apartments across the way and they were very noisy.

Reviewer: MrsHaze 4 reviews from this member

 This was our fourth visit to Whitemead and once again it was fantastic,

A lovely clean and well maintained site with an indoor pool and children's entertainment which was suitable for all ages.

A great base to explore the Forest of Dean and a lovely restaurant and bar to come back to.

We're already planning our fifth visit. 


Date of Visit: October 2017 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Preston Dave 11 reviews from this member

 We were invited by friends for a week away. It was a bit pricey at £45/night.

The pitches were reasonable, but difficult to access and reverse into due to narrow, twisty feeder roads and caravans on pitches across the other side of the feeder road. Some nights were quite noisy late at night.

Toilet block was dated and unkempt with poor timing on sensor lights in toilet cubicles. Service points were near and electric hook-ups were very close to the vans.

The swimming/sauna/steam room and jacuzzi were all free to campers and the pool was very child friendly. However, most activities incurred a charge. Locals, who also had membership to leisure centre pool, had mixed views as to whether recent changes had improved their lot, main gripe was hike in bar prices.

Forest walks and cycles were easily accessible and were well marked. Maps available at reception.

Work being carried out on site in two areas. This didn't really impact too much on stay, although might have stayed elsewhere if we had been made aware of it beforehand due to cement/delivery lorries and plant machinery using same narrow feeder roads.

Would I stay in area again? Probably yes at a less expensive site as so much to do in Forest of Dean on foot or by bike.

 Whitemead is a favourite campsite for us. It is a very reasonably priced campsite with an excellent indoor swimming pool. Many of the other facilities at the park have also been updated this year. The bar, shop and children's playground have all been improved. The staff are always very helpful. The pitches are good and the views amazing. We love it!
